I might have to just bite the bullet and order directly. Was hoping to use to use one of the "Black Friday" codes though.
I do have a couple questions though:
I'm looking to control 6 fans on one radiator (channel 1), 4 fans on another radiator (channel 2), 3 case fans (channel 3), 2 Swiftech D5 Vario pumps.
I don't need the IR remote or touchscreen (unless someone can tell me, other than "bling", a really good reason to have it), so will the Aquaero 6 Pro
+ Flow sensor "high flow G1/4"
be all that I need?
I also have 2 Phobya G1/4 Inline Temp Sensor Coupler - 2-Pin
. Will this work with the Aquaero or do I need to get their inline temperature sensors?
Lastly, what does the Aquaerao 6 give me over the Aquaero 5? I can get the 5 XT with touchscreen and remote for the same price as the base 6 model. I can't see any major differences for what I'm planning on doing.
The major plusses of the AQ6 over the 5 are:
1) PWM on all 4 channels
2) 2.5A per channel on air cooling with all channels at load . . . Output is 3A per channel with the water block when it comes out.
The AQ5 was 1.65A per channel, and needed the water block to run all the chans near max load.
The new AQ6 won't run two regular D5's on a single channel, you'd have to have either the PWM D5's to run 2 on a channel, (power from a molex) or use 2 channels.
If you need to expand the channels, you can add a 5LT as a slave to pick up channels for the lighter load fan groups, and have the D5's on the AQ6.
You configure the 5LT as a slave in the Aquasuite software.
The software is what really makes this thing so worth the cost.
You can create a virtual temp sensor which is the temp difference between an air temp sensor and a water temp sensor, that lets you control fan speed based on the air/water delta. . . . among other nice things.
The XT over the pro has touch sensors instead of physical buttons on the side, and has an additional 4 programmable buttons along the bottom.
Folks ay the Phobya sensors work OK too.
